Beauty Experiments....


My first Chanel purchase- I was never really into the Chanel range...a bit boring and a tad too expensive for me. But I thought I would give their foundations a go this week. I bought the Pro Lumiere (for my shiny face) but it was recommended you go for the Vita Lumiere if you have dry skin.

Anyway I found it to be...OK only. I guess I am comparing it to Nars Sheer Glow and Laura Mercier Oil Free Hydrating Foundation- which are my favourites! Pro Lumiere is good but for the price I will still prefer the Nars or LM foundations. I wouldn't repurchase again.

I also bought a lipgloss/lipstick from Chanel (Rouge Allure Laquer no. 72) which is a really beautiful red colour. It is so bright red but it makes my teeth look super white! Even when it fades it gives a nice natural red stain at the end of the day. I like the wand applicator so it's very easy to apply straight onto the lips. The texture is very hydrating but not sticky. BEWARE- it still smudges so be extra careful of red teeth!


Lately my skin has been problematic- lumps, bumps and dry, flaky skin. Very annoying. Decided to try this sample pack -SKINFOOD's Black Sugar Mask. It smells like lemons and looks like brown sugar mixed with honey or something strange. Very course and I feel like it's going to irritate my skin even more and my skin felt tight. I had to apply a super moisturising cream afterwards. Rodium Glam Balm is my saviour! I recommend this to anyone- it's much better than the Egyptian Magic Cream.


Finally- I managed to dye my hair! My roots were so horrible. I tried Schwarzkopf Coloriste Hair Dye in Chocolate Brown. It ended up being more like a Jet Black! Pair it with my pale white skin- I kinda look like Morticia from the Adams Family! haha


Stay tuned for more beauty experiments..........

The dark hair looks okay though? You need a colder face to be Morticia. :P Uff, the Black Sugar Mask sounds horrible. ><;

Love the hair color! I wanted to try Pro Lumiere too, but since you say your like sheer glow better, I guess I can skip it, cause I love sheer glow as well.
